The Smoking Gun


More proof that Fox News is a propaganda outlet for the Republican party!

Saturday, December 8, at 8:00 pm. Prime Time. Fox once again shows its colors as a transparent shill for the GOP. Just look at the news stories they had the audacity to air:


  • A live broadcast from Afghanistan ("the forgotten war").
  • An exclusive interview with Sen John Kerry.
  • Oprah Winfrey's endorsement of Barack Obama.

Those other news channels weren't covering any of this blatant Republican propaganda. CNN (the world's news leader) showed its superior news judgment by playing a taped rerun of an awards show:



And of course MSNBC avoided all that far-right Fox stuff. They had their priorities in order--they played their own taped rerun:



Fox News Channel, propaganda arm for the Republican Party. Q.E.D.

Drives me nuts. Fox may expose me but never the other guys. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. Think I'll pour me a tall cold glass of Allah's Swine Sperm Beer, brewed right in the Kaaba in Mecca. Only fresh Pig Sperm is used. Just like Muhammad taught in the Quran.

I believe CNN's tagline should be "The Most Planted Name in News"

That's it? That's your proof Fox is balanced? Major Garret covering the Oprah announcement and a single interview with John Kerry.
 
No offense or anything, Johnny, but you're not too bright, are you? Were you watching Hannity & Colmes last night? There wasn't a single Democrat allowed onto the show. Newt Gingrich, to promote Republican propaganda and his new "documentary". Then Dick Morris, to do his little "I HATE THE CLINTONS, SCREW DEMOCRATS" dance. And a two-segment interview with Mike Huckabee in which Powers squirmed like a gutless weasel and avoiding pressing him in a tough manner at all. Sean Hannity, literally, asked tougher questions than Powers did.
 
So, Democrats were banned from H&C for the night, and the "Democratic" moderator was a pro-life, anti-stem cell gutless coward who couldn't ask any serious questions to Huckabee and simply allowed him to talk over her.
 
There, I just destroyed your sarcasm, Johnny.

You want an idea of how lopsided Fox is, Johnny? Here's an idea, go to the Fox News Channel's website, and click on the video box.
 
Under Hannity & Colmes, you'll find the following solo guest interviews:
 
-Bolton
-2 segments with Gingrich
-Mitt Romney
-2 segments with Huckabee
-Tony Perkins
-Conservative pundit Peter Labarbera
-Conservative Steve Russell from pro-war "Vets for Victory"
 
Not one single solo interview with a liberal or Democrat, and if you claim otherwise, you're a liar. The only Democrat brought on, in the entire 15 video archive of the last week or so, of Hannity and Colmes, is a Democratic strategist brought on opposite Michael Reagan, because H&C does not allow solo Democrats on to make some attack against Republicans, the way they bring on people like Labarbera to attack Pelosi because some gay guys were running around naked in San Fran.
 
Got any response to this, Johnny boy, or are you merely going to run away, like always, because you can't defend this?
 
It's getting a little pathetic at this point, Johnny. You can't respond to anything. This is why people like Jonah Goldberg and writers for Newsbusters refer to O'Reilly and Fox News as "conservative" or "Right-leaning". No one takes the "fair and balanced" slogan serious accept complete idiots.

Correction, it wasn't Perkins, it was Falwell's son, and some babbling fool from Eastern University who is neither liberal nor a Democrat.
 
Republican vs. unaffiliated.

So it's not so much that they don't invite Democrats or Liberals on, Tom, it's that they don't invite the one's who you think are Liberal enough. Ahhh. Man, they should run their booking decisions by your more often.
 
I wonder, though.... Why did you single out H&C? You know, there are more shows than that. And doesn't the fact that they had a solo interview with John Kerry, himself, shoot down your, "They don't solo interview Democrats" argument?
 
Oh that's right, you were only focusing on one show. A show with a committed righty... and a committed lefty. Although, I guess Colmes (or the substitute Powers) isn't lefty enough in the 'small tent party' that you apparently believe it should be. Either you agree 100% with your point-of-view... or you're not really a Democrat. How very open minded of you.

Don't forget the flagship program O'Reilly, who daily goes one on one with one and oftentimes two liberals.
 
Oops- should I have included more shows, for example Cavuto, Gibson, Shep, and Tom's least favorite show, Fox News Watch?

I'm going to e-mail H&C, and tell them the only acceptable Libs for panelists will be found on the mutt-sight or in Hollywood.
